Canadian MMJ Producer Planning Enormous Grow

One of Canada’s 35 licensed medical marijuana producers has big plans for the future – plans the size of 10 football fields.

That’s how big an automated greenhouse in Alberta will be once Vancouver-based Aurora Cannabis is finished building it out, the┬áCalgary Sun reported. The grow will be roughly 600,000 square feet, with the capacity to produce more than 154,000 pounds of MMJ.

The facility is slated to be up and running in the summer of 2018, and could become the largest such operation in the country – although competitor Aphria Inc. recently bought a parcel of land capable of housing a 1-million-square-foot grow, the Sun reported.

Aurora Cannabis said it believes the Canadian MMJ market will be able to handle the supply it plans to produce, given that it estimates demand to be increasing 10% every month.

The company already runs a 55,200-square-foot-grow northwest of Calgary.
